Fascinating as a kind of dual view historical documentWritten in 1992 after the fall of the Cold War and the first Gulf War but before 911 this book looks back on the Foreign Office for about thirty years from the 60's through to the 90'sThis was written around the highpoint of 90's liberalism so its a fascinating look into the world view of that time It feels a much fluffier world which certainly it must not have seemed to be then but in comparison this book has a vague sense of the inevitability of bureaucratic western liberalism essentially taking over everythingThe most interesting and resonant parts are the fragmentary personality portraits and microdramas which take the parade of Foreign Secretaries who do seem to be near visually identical and transforms them into a kallaidoscope of uniue personalitiesThe presence of humanis in history is well noted In 1987 a major diplocmatic incident with Iran begins when the Iranian Vice Consul steals a purse and a few pairs of socks from a shop total value £775 and runs away from the police This escalates to the point where the number two at the british Embassy in Iran is driven off the road with his wife in the car and abductedOne who oddly sticks out is Douglas Hurd An amazingly boring man at least domestically but who's deep or at least coherent long term relationship with and ability to tolerate Thatcher makes him a major figure His boringness here valourised as a vital uality considering the amount of times that it is absolutely necessary that the Foreign Secretary says something and also vital that he says nothingThe Foreign Office seems to be a rather strange place an intensely elitist institution which sometimes nearly lives up to its elite reputation and one that in a sense seems to have its own view of the world and its own slow policy goals specifically the slow union of nations through mutual membership in treaties supra national organisations and combinations The tug of war between Prime Ministers and the FO seems to be eternal The FO is convinced that it is the only organisation which really understands what is going on and it does seem to be highly intelligent it also at times seems not to understand at all how the machinery of the world works Its an amazingly soft institution on discovering that the Russian Embassy had not dozens but hundreds of spies in the UK the FO were very worried about expelling them because it would make Britain look bad and provoke an extreme response from the Russians which seems to believe that nation states exist mainly to provide places for Diplomats to fly back and forth between and that democracies exist primarily to hire someone to sign the treaties which the FO arranges The world view reminds me a lot of a book I reviewed on here a while ago Stephen Sedlys may have got the name wrong Ashes and Sparks about his life as a lawyer and judge Like Sedly the FO is highly intelligent somewhat liberal intensely bureaucratic legalistic and totally convinced of a sense of mission which it is only half aware that it hasIt is this internal scale of priorities which is never disclosed even under uestioning in the House of Sommons that keeps the vast majority of those who wish to influence policy at a distance Bowing to outside pressure is anathema for the elite who have been trained to beleive that they are the natural interpreters of the best options in any situation Thus the atmosphere of a secret society run by the mandarins is preserved against those who are presumptuous enough to think that sometimes people outside the Foreign Office are aware of what will best serve the interests of Britain abroadForeign Secretaries seem to be in a position where they cannot really win but they can fuck up Huge amounts of what they deal with are effectively decided before they arrive by the contrasting interests of nations and the personalities of leaders the FO's most powerful contribution is sometimes just spotting stuff before it happens thier greatest failures are not spotting stuff especially wars and its high strategic win state is a well run meeting with a bit of paper at the endIt seems impossible to really know at the Foreign Office if you have ever won or entirely succeeded Successive Secretaries and their bureacracy are deepy invested in integration with the EU and regard it as an inevitability they play significant roles in the decolonisation of Zimbabwe and Hong Kong both situations where the British Government andor white settlers didn't really have a leg to stand on but where the decolonisation may have actually fucked the population than could have beed expectedWere those victories? Or just well managed instabilities? Maybe just avoiding chaos was the victory?Reading this in 2019 reading about our negotiations with China the FO's deep desire to bin the Falklands handing Zimbabwe over to Mugabe rather than the racist Ian Smith about the blind obsession with the EU its a strong reminder that history is long and we really don't know what is going to happen or what things will mean in the futureThere are many strange shadows of the future in this book;Douglas Hurd in 1986 If freedom of information simply means freedom for pressure groups to extract from the system only those pieces of information which buttress their own cause then conceivable the result might be greater confusion
